There’s a lot to this post, but we want to give everyone their due.
Brackify is shutting down, so we’re on a crunched schedule because we want to award a Book Cover of the Year.
First order of business, let’s wrap up November.
We’ve just wrapped up the last month
We had 2,444 votes this month. This was almost a record-setting bad month for us, but a couple authors showed out and got us to at least more than the least ever.
The November Book Cover of the Month is…
All the Lonely People by Jason Nelson! If you’re curious about how I felt about the book, check out the Facebook post that I posted when this book first landed on the bracket, here.
Let’s look at the stats!
Nelson received 253 total votes!
Blackwoods: The Beginning by Teressa J. Martin and Adaline McMillan was the runner up, so it’s an automatic bid into the 2018 Book Cover of the Year Wild Card round (as the sixth seed, but more on that in another post that dropped today).
But for now, let’s look at this month’s winner!
All the Lonely People is based on the podcast by the same name (available on your favorite podcast player).
After his wife dies, our protagonist is faced with the internal struggle of loss and grief while trying to raise his three-year old daughter. It’s an exploration of love, family, death, and what comes after.
I’ve added All the Lonely People to my TBR. (For those who are new to the deal, I buy the Book Cover of the Month to read and review in the future. I buy all the winning covers. I’ve already bought October, September, August, July, June, May, April, March, February, January, and December’s book.
Here’s Nelson’s Facebook page. Give it a like if you’re curious about her and her work.
So that ends another fun year of the bracket. This is the last year for a while at least, but that’s no reason to stop working hard to make this a great year. So, let’s get the 2018 Book Cover of the Year Wild Card Round kicked off! (See the other post)
